Views about soccer from our students

 

Senior Soccer Player:

My name is Cliodhna Donnelly and I’m currently in 6th year in Presentation. Playing soccer in the Presentation has always been a really fun and positive experience for me. Soccer has always provided me with a break from everything going on and getting the opportunity to represent the school throughout my years at Pres has been amazing . I’ve played on several different teams during my time in Pres. During my first three years in school, I was a part of teams that won Minor, Leinster and All-Ireland Finals as well as a Senior Leinster Final. In the past two years I’ve picked up a Junior, Leinster and All Ireland medal, another senior Leinster medal along with a Senior All Ireland medal this time around! In competing with all these teams at different levels, I’ve made many lifelong friends of all ages which has greatly enhanced my school experience. Due to the demands of playing  sport, I’ve had to learn to balance it with my schoolwork, this has only been made easier by the support of my teachers who have always been very accommodating. 

 

Junior Soccer Player:

 

My name is Clíodhna Murphy and I am currently in TY in Presentation Secondary School Kilkenny.I personally really enjoy playing soccer as I love sports.  I started playing soccer with my school in 1st year and I have continued ever since. Over my 4 years in the school, I have won 3 All Ireland titles. I won these when I was u15, u17 and u19. I have also won 4 leinster titles throughout the years. Playing soccer has really developed me as a person and has allowed me to make new friends from not only my year but from older and younger years too. We train after school every week.This training is very enjoyable. I get to enjoy playing and talking with my friends but also improving my soccer skills too. I really enjoy soccer as I get time away from books and I get to play against different schools. I have no doubt that when I look back at my time in Pres, I will be grateful for the life long friends and memories I have from soccer.
